Ever since the publication of the first edition in 1997, the Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series has met the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants by providing contemporary, evidence-based information on the sub-specialist areas relevant to their general surgical practice. All eight volumes are thoroughly edited and supported by evidence-based references to support key recommendations. This new Fourth Edition brings together the relevant state-of-the-art specialist information that the editors and authors consider important for the practising sub-specialist general surgeon.
A standardised approach is used across the series to provide up-to-date information in a way that will be consistent and familiar to the reader.
Each volume gives a current and concise summary of the key topics within each major surgical sub-specialty.
Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and by also identifying the key papers in the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter.
New to this Edition
This new Fourth Edition is presented in colour throughout, including colour photographs of operative procedures, investigations and clinical signs throughout.
The entire contents have been comprehensively updated with particular reference to the evidence-based content of each chapter.

Available for purchase as a single volume or as part of a set of all eight volumes in an elegant slipcase. Also now available as eBooks as part of a Companion series eLibrary.
